    Default Just had air con regassed but...

    As title says just got air con regassed, print out given indicated that there was zero refrigerant remaining so filled up and running fine apart from what looks like smoke arising from condenser and also had a little burst of it through the footwell, is this normal after being refilled from empty?
    Any help appreciated

    print out given indicated it was pressure tested and no leaks detected, given that there was nothing left in it i was expecting to be told that there was a leak so i'm a little bit confused here

    How long did they hold the vacuum for as it should be at least 30 minutes to detect leaks.

    No aircon expert, but I've never seen any sort of smoke coming from one, I's suspect a leak, maybe a small one. If it's coming into the car I don't think breathing it is likely to be a good idea.

    definately got a leak as its not working again, lasted about two hours from gettin it filled. the test they did ran for about 25 mins, then another 10 mins. to fill it, guess it'll be a journey back to get money back!
